Our Federation serves as a convener and advocate to coordinate and strengthen security efforts across our local Jewish agencies, schools and synagogues. We maintain strong relationships with law enforcement authorities in Hartford and West Hartford, and we recently entered into a formal partnership with the Secure Community Network to bolster security at all of Greater Hartford's Jewish institutions.

So far, the partnership has:

  • Brought SCN experts to our community for two days of initial onsite assessments at local institutions
  • Presented virtual programs on cybersecurity best practices and Countering Active Threat Training to dozens of local community leaders
  • Begun a "quiet period" of fundraising for a long-term initiative that will strengthen the security of our entire community

In addition, our Federation helps to protect over 30 historic Jewish cemeteries with additional police patrols and regular visits by Federation staff.

Look for an announcement about the new security initiative coming later this spring. Or, to learn more about our security work, contact Laura Zimmerman.
